and says they are moving all their jobs. it's embarrassing for mr. romney. why would mitt romney get up in front of 12,000 people in ohio and tell them the auto bailout hasn't helped you at all. your jobs are going to china. i read it somewhere. where's the story? we found it. he was apparently trolling the nether regions of the right-wing press. he found it on a washington examiner blog post, which reported, quote, jeep, an obama favorite, looks to shift production to china. a move that would crash the economy in toledo. this is a misreading of a bloomberg report that was reporting good news. global demand for jeep has risen to the point where they can sell more in china and wants to build jeeps for china in china. this is good news for an american company, not bad news. they are not shipping american jobs overseas. this doesn't mean less work for americans. this means they are adding, they are expanding overseas. thanks to the auto bailout, chrysler stuck around to win again. yay! or as mitt romney put it -- >> jeep is thinking of moving all production to china. >> i cover camp

independents. independents will decide this race in all of the states. governor romney consistently leads among independents. they have seen his message come forward creating 12 million jobs, real recovery and strengthening the middle class. second, we have an incumbent running for four years since he was elected, raisings and spending $1 billion and he is stuck below 50 percent at 48 percent, 47 percent, 46 percent in all the palms. when you are incumbent under 50 that is a bad place to be. >>chris: this has been your focus so far early voting and absentee voting. this is nationally, at this point half a million viewer democrats have voted than in final early voting in 2008 while more republicans have voted already early than did in the final voting four years ago but the democrats still lead as you can see by almost 600,000 votess well as they did four years ago and you are doing better than john mccain but they will still beat you. >> well, he can hope and wish all he wants. there are two key points. they have been voting their script. those are the voters who will turn out under any circums

coming together. this jobs number today, romney pointing out that at 7.9%, unemployment, millions of americans are still working for work. you say this number is a good number and evidence that things are actually showing progress. but do we need four more years of this current administration's economic policies if it's been so difficult to move the needle? >> i think it's been slow moving the needle. if you think of the fact we were 800,000 jobs losing, we've made a lot of progress. we have an average of 170 j,000 jobs the last quarter. consumer confidence is up. housing starts are up. housing prices are up. i think you see the trend here. i think the ceo you just interviewed acknowledged it. people feel like we've turned a corner, and we need to go forward. going backwards to what we saw with the bush administration where we didn't gain one new net job. there's a reason why the people are trying to bury this congressional research report which says that mitt romney's idea that if we lower taxes we're going create jobs is bogus. it doesn't work. it won't work. >> i don't know that a

protect against them goes to governor romney want to weaken. we have 5.3 million private sector jobs, twice as many as in the previous years under the republicans before the meltdown. as everyone knows, there are 250,000 more. i have heard governor romney's explanation for why he denied that and he tied himself more than a boy scouts knot tying contest. ohio is an old school state. that is the best stance he had when you are back against the wall. look at where we are going. his jobs plan is based on investments in education so everybody can do the jobs of the future for people who are in school in people who are out of school. ohio in cleveland is getting new training so people can get decent jobs. invest in technology and research. that is a better economic plan. this is a loser. it is bad for america. obama is economic plan is better for the future of america. obama education plan is better for the future of america. he is committed to hiring 100 and thousand new science and technology teachers in our schools. committed to cutting the rate of inflation cut in half and committed to

out sourcing. bain capital, romney have been criticized for outsourcing jobs. now romney is saying, well chrysler is outsourcing jobs. think about it. we did indeed rescue chrysler with american taxpayer money. we sold it to italy, which is now expanding jobs in china. that is a form of outsourcing, isn't it? so romney is criticizing the obama administration for what the administration has been criticizing romney for doing. megyn: aren't we just as -- if we bailed them out don't we just want them to make a profit so that they can pay us back and do we care whether they do that in chin united states? >> you're making far too much economic sense. this is not economics this is politics. megyn: this is a tit for tat. i outsourced, you outsourced to. >> no, this is a very serious drag out argument. the democrats are really going strong on the idea that romney lied in that ad. he did not lie. he did not say that u.s. jeep production is being moved out of the country, he didn't say that. he was simply, flat out accurate in saying that we rescued chrysler, sold it to the italians and they

. >> so it's an act of desperation? >> i think so. i think the problem for mitt romney here is, look at ohio, right? talk about a dispute over jobs and facts and he is losing. if you go on twitter, i mean, i was doing #romneyohioclips as the hash tag and the obama campaign and others were circulated today. not three, not five, but literally about 15 articles saying to mitt romney, you've got the economic plan wrong with your approach to jobs and the auto industry. and number two, equally important in a campaign, you're lying. stop lying to the people of ohio. >> dr. peterson, "the washington post," to ari's point, had an article entitled, mitt romney's campaign insults voters. through all the flip-flops there has been one consistency in the campaign of republican president nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. romney seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills and general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. >> yeah, again, if we put that revenge comment in its proper context, part of what th
